’n Baie klein, groenerige, geel voëltjie met ’n kenmerkende ring om die oog. Hulle is baie lief vir vrugte en geniet die miniolaskil en sappige binnekant wat ek op die voëlbad in ons tuin neergesit het, vreeslik!
(Zosterops pallidus)
These very small indigenous birds (near-endemic to South-Africa, occurring across much of the country, excluding the Kalahari Desert and extending into south-eastern Botswana) commonly occur in gardens, especially when fruit trees are bearing. They are hyperactive and not generous with photographers but offer more opportunities while eating the fruit.
